Freshers week was great. The University sold wristbands that allowed us to take part in events through each day and night of the whole week with transport there and back from venues. Couldn’t have asked for more, it was great value for money
Leeds Trinity has a great variety of accommodation. They have self catered and part catered halls as well as the self catered halls having en-suite bathrooms. All bills are included in the rent price, which is a lot cheaper than some student houses off campus. The accommodation is up to date and isn’t too overcrowded.
Lecture halls and classrooms are never too small which I think is great. As it is a smaller university it makes lectures feel less daunting as you’re not talking to a lecture hall full of people.
The library has a 24/7 computer room which comes in handy when deadlines become closer. Finding books that you need is so easy as the library website is connected to the computers in there with an easy to read filing system.
The Student Union is the best. They have great representation around the Univerisity which allows every student to know that they have someone looking out for them. They organise great events for students, petition for what students think is important for the university to have/do and are supportive of every student with the University.
My course is great because all my lecturers have a background in what they study. They have had jobs working in intelligence, the army, and prisons which allows me to learn about the practical part of criminology as well as the academic part.
The lectures are never too big so it feels a lot less informal and personal. It’s a better environment to learn in without fear of interrupting hundreds of people when wanting to ask a question.
Leeds Trinity is set in a town called Horsforth which is about 15 minutes from Leeds city centre. There is a train and bus which both get you into Leeds pretty quickly.
I like this as I can stay in a more quiet town most of the time and choose to go into town for shopping or nights out without worrying about a long commute.
I think it’s important that students know how great the lecturers are. Theyre always happy to answer any questions you have and have office hours whenever you need to talk to them. They give great lecturers as well as uploading any PowerPoint slides and information online to look back at.
The criminology course currently has no exams which is great for somebody who wants to study this subject but worries about exam performance.
